Repaired wall at Terrraset ES

It was a week ago – on the first day of the 2016-17 school year — that a passenger van crashed into a wall of Terraset Elementary School.

The crash damaged the wall outside the school’s new art room. There were no serious injuries.

Fairfax County Police said on Monday that the driver of the van — who was carrying children to afterschool care — may still be charged. No charges have been filed so far, and police have not identified the 55-year-old driver.

Last Tuesday was the first day in the fully renovated school after a more than two-year construction project.

Terraset Principal Lindsay Trout said the building suffered no structural damage after the crash.

    Send the driver or the employer the bill please. I don’t want taxpayer money paying for this incident.

    We have such a (insert sarcasm) money crisis currently.

      One would think this is why drivers and businesses have insurance.
